The ECCA (European Climate Change Adaptation) conference is an important biennial event on Climate Change Adaptation, convened by projects that receive funding from the Horizon 2020 Programme. This year the conference was held in Lisbon from 28 to 31 May.
One of the six themes of the conference “Climate risk management and resilience” will debate the measures to reduce climate risks and to increase resilience, also considering the use of Nature-Based Solutions one of the topics within INXCES.
Fully in line with ECCA 2019, INXCES recognizes the urgency of the situation that causes economic and other losses throughout Europe, and works to regenerate ecosystem services to cope with hydro-meteorological events since “grey infrastructures” are not always effective, adaptive and sized against climate changes.

Some INXCES partners participated to the conference, taking the opportunity to introduce INXCES results on flood and heatstress modelling & SuDS in their abstracts and presentations:
